    @CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  Oh my. o.O He does realize untreated, it’s a potentially life threatening condition? 

    Boys are so stubborn :

    @HappySky7:  It is! Though I can’t seem to convince my Fiance either…

    Besides the sleep apnea, and the snoring — which I sleep right through, a fact that amazes everyone he knows — he hates to cuddle to fall asleep, but about halfway through the night, or whenever I fall perfectly into sleep (whichever comes first) he decides that he NEEDS to have the blanket, and me with it. He generally drags both over to his side. That’s taken some getting used to.

    DH snores sometimes – usually I just tilt his head or nudge him to make him shift position and he stops.

    Mostly, though, he talks… and won’t shut up unless I answer.

    Niether of us snore unless we’re sick for which I am thankful because we’re both light sleepers. He twitches in his sleep, elbows me usually in the head or eye, and farts. I am apparently a vicious kicker in my sleep and leave bruises on his shins. We’re both blanket stealers, so we just end up pulling on the covers all night long. One night I slept alone and pulled all of the covers onto the floor next to me because he wasn’t there to provide counterforce. We’re currently sleeping in side by side twin beds, but we eventually plan on getting a king bed. We’re going to need our own set of covers for each side of the bed.

    I wonder sometimes why sharing a bed is considered the norm, when so many people have such awful and disructive sleeping habits.

    My DH snores sometimes, steals covers, and rolls around a lot. We sleep with separate blankets on a memory foam mattress to try and avoid disrupting each other, but it still sometimes happens. I occasionally sleep in the guest bed when I can’t take it any more! Sometimes I fantasize about the 1950s sitcom dual twin beds instead of our king, haha.

    Fiance snores which I am getting used to, but once in a while, he’ll call out to me in his sleep asking if I’m ok or something. I’ll wake up and remember everything the next day, but he’ll have no recollection of it. His response is always “see? even when I’m knocked out, I still want to take care of you”

    My Fiance walks, talks and does “home repairs” in his sleep. Some nights he just talks, sometimes jibberish sometimes real words or sentances. He frequelty gets and walks around in the night. One night I woke up and he was standing on the bed taking apart the light in our bedroom (he used to be a carpenter so he used to do a lot of tiles, dry wall ect). One night I woke up to him fondeling me and muttering “It’s too uneven to tile here!” 
    He also tries to “save me” from things that happen in his dreams, like wood falling on my feet, or me falling off something.. It’s sweet, but I think I’ll never get a good nights sleep again.

    He has sleep apnea and snores so badly that I can’t be in the same room with him, so I actually don’t know if he does any of the others! He really needs to go see a sleep doctor, but he keeps putting it off. I’m really nervous about our honeymoon in a couple of weeks – anyone got some really good earplugs to recommend? Frown

    (We’ve tried everything before – pills, sprays, mouth guards, earplugs, noise machines… Even tried them ALL at the same time. I still can’t sleep because it’s really that bad.)

    @lizzieb:  If they don’t like CPAP, there are other options. But seriously, I don’t understand how the risk of a stroke, heart attack etc is not enough of a motivator to try something. : My Father-In-Law has severe SA. He has a CPAP and does very well on it but will not use it. How frustrating

    Mine talks and is pretty good at elbowing me in the face. He also steals the covers and snores sometimes. There’s been some interesting nights with him, lol, he’s had conversations with me… in his sleep.

    He snores, not too bad but probably about 30% of the nights.

    The funniest/most painful is that if I ever go to bed after him and try to climb in subtally while he’s asleep he has this refelx action where his arm just flings out – twice he has cracked me across the nose.  It hurts but is also really really funny and I’ve now learnt to keep an eye on the arm while getting into bed!

    DH snores, farts, talks, and hogs the bed, thankfully never all at the same time. Oh, and sometimes he gets a little “handsy”… like I’ll be drifitng off to sleep and all of a sudden there will be a hand on my butt. He’s even tried to make out with me a couple of times!

    He snores, and he denies it.  He’ll say “I only snore when my nose is stuffed up.” Well then its stuffed up every night because you snore every night.  He also steals blankets which he also denies.  He says I steal them from him, no sweetie, you steal them from me and then I have to steal them back.  For a while there this winter he would hit me in his sleep.  I had a black eye for about a week once when I got an elbow to the face.  Sad thing is we have a king sized bed….so that tells you how much of a bed hog he is lol.
